God is locked up
A prisoner of the mind
Made less than human
More than divine

God looks through the bars of the intellect
Treads on the shards of the wreck of humankind
And what does God find?
It is man who is the prisoner of the mind


Love smoulders
And will not blow out
Though storms have raged
It's quiet now
And in the stillness 
Darkness fills
Spaces once inhabited
And light infuses
Every vanquished attempt 
To find God 
In humankind

Love is kindled
By the breath of every
Word of kindness
Every self-less thought
Every act of devoted-ness
And then life becomes a flame


Ah, blessed man-woman trinity
Image of divinity
Flicker on
